Hello! This is again your old friend Missman and I'm again with interesting news.

Today I watched again my beloved US doc. "The Champions", I watched Tie Your Mother Down footage and noticed very interesting moment: TYMD on "The Champions" is a compilation of the second and third nights of Paris and when I closely watched it I noticed a bit of footage from Tokyo on April 25, 1979  (I think it's from Tokyo because all four members are dressed in the same costumes as on this concert, the same camera angle and the same video quality) and I'm 100% sure that this bit is from TYMD from Tokyo.

And below couple screenshots.

Hi all,

I'm always lurking, but had to reply to this thread, although I don't have much helpfull info to add.
Years ago I stumbled onto a Japanese site of Queen rarities and live shows. It was completely
in the Japanese language, albeit unreadable. On the site were screenshots of two Japense '79
shows on video. The shows were complete from start to finish, judging from the screenshots that
depicted all the songs. I found the website around 2006, but I lost the link after a 
computercrash. Never found the site again after that, so I can't "prove" it... Always wanted to post this
info, but never did because I don't have the link anymore.

It's no bulshit story. The one concert was the 79 Japanese show we all know; the other show was
of the same era, but Fred was wearing another cut glitter leotard during the encore.
The one was the silver one (cutt off trousers) and the other the red leotard.

cheers,
Peter

=============================

Maybe screenshots of Freddie in silver leotard were from this gig at 1:23 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhLRpQY-e_0
I hope some day you'll find this site again and give us a link :-)

I can remember this site too. It had screenshots of Hammersmith '75 with the Bob Harris intro, and also seemed to be implying that it included SSOR and SWAFIB?

Gonna see if I can find it

Glad you found it cause I couldn't.

That pic on superman's shoulders is just a still picture unfortunately. It's shown on the interview.

**** I JUST NOTICED MORE MISSING FOOTAGE****
We Will Rock you on the Japanese TV broadcast - Brians solo is edited but it is COMPLETE on the Champions doco, interesting the commentator talks over the tops of the missing bit. Coincidence?

Interesting catch !  This is one of those spots on The Champions where the video is from Tokyo but the audio is dubbed from Live Killers.  So the commentary wasn't placed there to hide anything - it was already hidden.  Brian sounds out of tune on the snippet heard on the Japanese TV broadcast, which is probably why the 20 seconds were edited out there.. and the US TV folks had their own solution.  But what makes this odd is, the guitar sounds fine on the audience recording.
